When the girls behind Mumbai-based label NorBlack NorWhite headed back to their hometown for a week-long pop-up shop at Miracle Thieves in Toronto, I knew a piece from their collection would be a must-have addition to my wardrobe. How could you not support young people with such a passion for extraordinary textiles?

Personally, I was completely taken by this beautifully split tank: the front features a stiff black-and-white print, while the back has an orange-and-fuscia tie-dyed silk chiffon.

NorBlack NorWhite, incidentally, is partaking in an exhibition at the Textile museum of Canada calledWANDERLUSTalongside contemporary artistsJordan Bennett and The Color Collective. It’s on now until mid-November.

Speaking of November, have the temperatures not begun to feel more like the turn of winter than fall? This outfit is a kiss goodbye to summer, and potentially the last we will see of bare legs for a while. Although, who knows? I was, after all, wearing shorts last March when we had that mid-month heat wave.

This skirt is from Banana Republic’s Desk to Dinnercollection, which, as you can see, suits this day-to-night outfit perfectly. The denim jacket and shades add the laid-back element that covers up my dinner date-ready look beneath. I say, show some skin while you still can!

What I Wore: Matthew Williamson x Linda Farrow sunglasses from EyeStudio.ca, vintageWrangler jean jacket, top by NorBlack NorWhite, skirt by Banana Republic, shoes by Aldo Rise.
